And Joel's is a shitload bigger and safer, this one's just got a few cosmetic things added to it, Joel could always do that with his cannons as well...

Ehhh... quit trying to rag on Joel's cannons. This guy has two measly sprinkler valves. The Mega Launcher has two Supah Valves... 4.134 square inches of flow, after opening. That pretty much beats the pants off dual sprinkler valves. Hell, my next valve will have more flow than dual sprinklers.8)

Also, note that this guy wouldn't have a barrel if it weren't for Joel...

I love this cannon (aside from a few safety things) but you gotta remember, the Mega Launcher is MUCH larger, MUCH more powerful, and can be towed by a truck :shock:

Now the Mega Launcher 2 is a different story.

This is like discussing the difference between a nice ring and a set of brass knucles. Think about it.

Why all the comparisons and negative remarks,jealousy perhaps, I salute any of you who build nice guns. The one pictured here would be welcome in my arsenal. Using it to entertain kids is also a plus. I do that myself sometimes ,its a blast. and the kids love it. So do I.

Because it is not appreciated when someone bashes the cannon made by a professional builder just because it doesn't "appear" as nice as someone else's.

Everyone has their own building style... insults toward cannons or even slightly diminishing comparisons, or statements such as "eat your heart out" aren't really appreciated by many people.
